The Octane has a very demanding high speed requirement and rim width, but if fully powered its dome will provide excellent glide and cover massive distance.
Power throwers will be able to hyzerflip the Octane for max distance, while average throwers may only see a shallow turn from the Octane. This power responsive nature allows the Octane to be used in a variety of lines and situations by adjusting power and release angles. With its high speed requirement and stable-understable nature at full speed, many average power players may find the Octane to be a suitable max distance stable-overstable driver.
Octane falls in the general stability lineage of Switch, Amp, Inertia, and Wave, with a slow-turning profile that holds long and straight until its fade finish. The 23mm Octane is designed to be relatively less understable than its 21.5mm counterpart Wave. Average throwers should see straight flights with a bit of shallow turn, while power throwers will be able to hyzerflip for max distance and tailwind lines.
